The Belfry Hotel & Resort in Royal Sutton Coldfield has reopened two of its golf courses as of Monday 1st June 2020.
The resort opened its award-winning Brabazon and PGA National courses which are recognised as world-class, having previously hosted The Ryder Cup four times – more than any other venue in the world – and two European Tour events, producing some of the most dramatic moments in the history of golf.
James Macbeth Stewart, Resort Director, said: “We’ve received a great response from golfers and our members who can’t wait to get back on the course and we are very thankful for their support. It feels fantastic to be able to welcome them back.
“The safety and wellbeing of our guests and team are our top priority, and we’ve taken the time to ensure we have enhanced safety measures in place. The remainder of the resort will be closed until further notice to comply with Government guidance and social distancing measures. When we do reopen the whole resort, we will donate our green fee income from our opening day to a number of charities locally and across the UK.
There are also some changes to PGA National. The 18th hole is a new risk and reward par 4. The design was inspired by our Ryder Cup course and the PGA course’s brother, The Brabazon, and in particular the iconic 10th hole.
The new 1st tee layout and golf experience is also greatly improved with a new tee/green complex befitting the Championship course.
Commenting on the golf course reopening, Stuart Broad, Belfry Ambassador at The Belfry, said: “I am delighted to hear that The Belfry’s golf courses is reopening and I wish the best of luck to the team who do an incredible job of looking after the 500 acre estate. Golf at The Belfry is first class and I am really looking forward to playing.”
